Profiles: Dr. Mae Corvera

Dr. Mae Corvera founded The Ruth Foundation for Palliative and Hospice Care to make life better for those facing advanced illness and age. Sadly, quality end-of-life care in the Philippines requires much work and financial resources.

Unlike more developed countries, home-based palliative and hospice care is not yet integrated in the Philippine health care system. This is the driving force behind Mae’s passionate lobby for palliative care to be included in the country’s universal health bill, which was recently approved in the Senate.
